Tiger is a polygenic mutation.
The Original line is from Nevell James bought in the early 2000s. He had the original male from a guy named Richard Quick. Richard spent a lot of time breeding reptiles in Alaska. Richard sent one to Neville and Neville bred it with a coastal from East Bay Vivarium. It was tagged as a coastal when it came in and there was some debate on if it was coastal. It was accepted that it was a coastal based on the timeframe that it came in. 
They have a really defined head pattern, it looks like it was drawn on by a sharpie. The original stock had a connecting neckband that connected to the head pattern. It had a very distinct look to it. It was different from the trip-stripe or striped coastals of the time. They didn’t seem to have as broad of a stripe and the head pattern wasn’t as distinct. 
They have a broad dorsal and lateral band. The lateral band would sometimes show as a stripe and other times as a series of ovals that went along the side. 
In the early days, this gene was thought to be incomplete dominant.
